  • The Elder Scrolls: Evolution

    11 1

    More
    Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls series is a fantasy role playing adventure renowned for both its detail and scope. The dedication necessary to build such a world requires years of careful craftsmanship. That helps explain why the past few titles each... More
  • The Other Mass Effect Ending: The Start of Something Big

    9

    More
    Let's talk about the Mass Effect ending. (Dramatic pause for collective groan.) No, no, not that one. I finished Mass Effect 2 not that long ago and it surprised me. Why? Because unlike the vast majority of fans, I thought the sequel was far inferior... More
  • Bruce Payne 2-1/2: Dizzy Stupor Heroes

    6

    I acquired Max Payne 3 and LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes about the same time because they both appeal to my sense of childhood wonder and unmitigated bloodlust, or because the two games had a similar release window. In any event, they are so similar that a smashup phlog was a natural, or at least inevitable given how lazy and ambivalent I've become.

  • The Age of Video Games: Prometheus & Game Development

    5

    More
    You might be hard pressed to find a link between Prometheus and game development, however, watching Ridley Scott's film I had an unusual perspective that also raised questions about our interactive medium. I'll begin by analyzing the movie, including... More
  • Anime Expo 2012: Cosplay, Fan Art & Collectibles

    3

    More
    I thought I knew anime, but reading about Anime Expo 2012 made me realize I know nothing about anime. Although my attendance on the AX showfloor for a few hours garnered little more insight, I did develop an appreciation for how broad the anime universe... More
  • My (Belated) E3: Planetside 2, Samsung Cloud Gaming, Watch Dogs & Wrap Up

    4 1

    I've finally caught up with my lack of E3 sleep, so am posting my last day experiences and wrap up. Better late than never, I hope. In case you haven't already seen footage of the demos I'll be writing about, or you simply want a different perspective, I'll fill you in on the sights and sounds of the show's finale.

  • My (Belated) E3: Divinity Debut, DayZ's Hall, Raven's Cry, Otherland, Kartuga & More

    In retrospect, E3 was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Whether finishing officework in advance, coordinating schedules, prepping for meetings and blogging, nevermind trying to not be an absentee family man, I was burning the candle at both ends. But I survived considerable sleep deprivation to blog another day,

  • My E3: Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider & Resident Evil 6

    9

    If the Electronic Entertainment Expo teaches anything it's patience. The kind of patience we learn from the Magic Kingdom. Indeed, E3 is a kind of magic kingdom where attendees wait in lines for more lines all in hopes of experiencing something wondrous. While I spent the majority of my first day on Tuesday in slow processionals, it did pay off from time to time.

  • My E3: Pre-Show Buildup

    I realize many of you likely gorged on the Electronic Entertainment Expo's press briefings yesterday and considered it the start of the convention. The irony for me is that any other year I would have done the same at least in the evening, but this... More
  • Making Imaginary Friends in Dragon's Dogma

    15

    More
    The further I venture into Dragon's Dogma the more deep -- and satisfying -- the game becomes. Not only does my character, Lhyria, demonstrate more potential, but the pawn system comes into its own as an innovative and welcome addition. Indeed Capcom's... More
  • Dragon's Dogma Gets a Second Chance to Make a First Impression

    13

    More
    Despite conventional wisdom, I did give Dragon's Dogma a second chance to make a good first impression. Not that my initial impression was poor, but more on that later. Both fledgling attempts revealed some interesting takeaways on Capcom's foray... More
  • Sniper Elite V2 Had Greatness in its Sights

    6

    More
    Rebellion Developments' first Sniper Elite game was an exceptional shooter that successfully mixed tactical gameplay with arcade elements in a world fraught with danger and opportunity. Its remake is a commendable and rewarding update, but whose tweaks... More
